Sometimes, children can have dental anxiety so severe that it makes it difficult for Drs. Koehler, Soria, and Padmanabhan to perform treatments. In addition, very young children or those with special needs may not be able to cope with dental procedures. For those situations, our doctors may recommend general anesthesia for their care. To learn whether general anesthesia is the most appropriate option for your child, we welcome you to schedule your appointment with our pediatric dentists by calling us at 860-649-4655.

Our practice is affiliated with the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (CCMC). Treatments requiring general anesthesia are performed by our doctors at CCMC, with anesthesia provided by a trained pediatric anesthesiologist. During the treatment process, your child will be safely sedated under the effects of general anesthesia and will not be aware of the details of their visit. Your child’s safety and comfort are our highest priorities, and we take the utmost care to ensure your child is well taken care of at all times. The pediatric anesthesiologist will remain with them throughout the procedure to monitor their condition. If your child has been recommended for general anesthesia, you are welcome to contact Pediatric Dental Associates today with any questions or concerns.
